During amusing posts like this,
and others that appear here,
noone takes the time to ask some important questions.
Big questions
regarding key issues
of
whether either side of the situation has been
neglected. Especially in legal matters, it is
important to consider both
sides of an argument without
arbitrarily dismissing an statement out of
hand. Blanket statements
and generalizations are too often
created as people attempt to make it appear as though they
know every facet of the discussion already.

I liked The Da Vinci Code, and went on to read the rest of Brown's books. They made me angry. They all have the same plot twists. Every one. It was annoying. If you read one, you can figure out who the "mystery character" is in each of them.

i actually went into a "brick oven pizza" the other day in north port, fl and ordered a large sausage and pepperoni
after paying the $15 they said

"you know this is a take and bake product right?"
"huh?"
"yea we just put the toppings on a crust you take it home and cook it"
"what?!"
"they're quite popular up north"

they were next right to a quizno's too .. are they affiliated or something?

one day it's a playful code in a ruling. the next, you're fixing parking tickets for hockey players and losing your bench. there is no room for frivolity in our legal system. except, of course, for some the asinine laws on the books.

golf clap for judge!

I enjoyed The Da Vinci Code the same way I enjoy entertaining-but-otherwise-empty action movies.

That said, can't wait for Tom Hanks in the movie version.

Dan Brown may not be Umberto Eco, but so what? He got the masses charged up and discussing and interesting topic. Eco is just not accessible to most people. But I'm not so much of a snob as to say Brown is no better than pop music. Just because something is popular doesn't necessarily make it crap.

You're halfway there, muninsfire...

Now re-arrange the letters giving prioritized weight to the vowels IN ORDER. A before E before I, etc...

You'll be pleasantly surprised when you solve it :)

I read the book and thought it was way overrated. My parents really liked it, but my reaction was something like "number one, it's an old, lame, discredited heresy; number two, read a real fantasy/SF novel."

Kudos to submitter and the judge, though.

I hated that stupid book. The plot was meh, and the characters were idiots. Research librarians who don't know how to research? A da Vinci expert who didn't know da Vinci's idiosyncratic writing style? Ugh.

I hate those so much! I can already read the question & know the answer but have to move those dumb blobs. I wasn't a big fan of the chess one or the hanging paintings one, either.
I'm an art history major & my teachers complain about how dumb the book was. I don't plan on seeing the movie, but not specifically for that reason.

my view is, Brown is like mixing Templar/Priory conspiracy with stereotyped Grisham-ish characters and plot.

Not a bad combination for a popular book, pretty easy to guess it would sell well. At least people are reading above a fourth-grade level. Harry Potter isn't The Hobbit, but at least lots of kids are reading at an age-appropriate level.

mryoop789 [TotalFark]

I didn't think it was well written. Just a run-of-the-mill thriller. Plus, Umberto Eco covered the Illuminati much more competently in Foucault's Pendulum.


I thought the DaVinci Code was utter shiate.

Full off cliches (oooh an albino baddie!) and crappy 'twists'. I'd never really understood what people meant by 'one dimensional characters' until I read that sodding book.

If you want fun conspiracy stuff, then Eco's fine, but Robert Anton Wilson is the real genius at head-mashing Illuminati stuff.

Fnord.

submitter was a lazy freaking bastard for using Caps not italics in headline

Is it even possible to do HTML code in headlines on Fark?
 
2006-04-26 05:08:36 PM
Anyone have a list of all the italicized letters, or know of a way to get them out of a pdf file?

Best idea I could come up with would be to cut and paste the pdf contents into word, save as html, sent to a linux system, then use grep and awk to pull out everything between the html tags. But then I remembered I was lazy.

And lots of adults are... oh wait.

Submitter's headline was far better than the book. He gets 256 cool points.
